“The availability of our IGL Coatings cleaning and maintenance products at a major departmental store is a first for us. It’s simply amazing how IGL Coatings was introduced to Finland less than 12 months ago and is currently spearheading its way as one of the leaders in the market,” said Keong Chun Chieh, CEO of IGL Coatings.

He continued, “The Finnish automotive aftercare market is very robust, especially their demand for high quality and sustainable goods. It’s great to see their support and growing acceptance of our products and sustainable goals.”

Finland is one of the earliest countries to promote sustainability.  In 1993, they established the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development (FNCSD) focusing on sustainable development as part of its national policies and administrative practices.

The low population density and comparatively unspoiled natural environment facilitate nature conservation in Finland. Its people are dedicated to the preservation of the environment and its successful environmental policies are clearly visible around the country.

“Finland has been one of the leading countries in the international benchmark studies measuring environmental sustainability and economic growth. In our case it has been proved that competitiveness and environmental protection can be mutually supportive,” stated Minister for Foreign Trade and Development, Paavo Väyrynen in his foreword to Finland’s statement to the UN Security Council in 2013-2014.

“We believe that our performing, quality, sustainable, REACH compliant products are key factors for its increasing popularity in Finland. Kärkkäinen Oy will increase the accessibility of our products at a click of a button,” said Keong.
